Blood loss is the leading cause of preventable death after trauma. However, stored blood products are at times unavailable (pre-hospital care, austere environments, underdeveloped countries), undesirable (risk of immune response), or in short supply to meet demand (mass casualty event). This session will provide an overview of issues and opportunities with the blood supply, key considerations with treating hemorrhage from trauma, initiatives to address the blood supply, and new products in development.
 

Objectives

  • Identify issues with treating life-threatening hemorrhage in the pre-hospital setting.
  • Describe artificial and freeze-dried blood products in development.

We will discuss strategy for moving toward a patient-centered system organized around what patients need and patient outcomes achieved.

Risk management, a discipline within pharmacovigilance, is a science to enhance patient safety globally. Regulations or guidelines are in place in over seventy (70) countries around the globe and have evolved in the past decade. Health authorities such as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the European Medicines Agency (EMA) may request risk evaluation and mitigation strategies (REMS) or risk management plans (RMPs) for review. These health authorities may require risk management activities to be implemented to further characterize risks or minimize risks to patients. Numerous methods exist to manage risks in patients taking medicinal products, including additional risk minimization measures such as communication and educational materials. Risk minimization strategies are developed to ensure safe and appropriate use of a medicinal product within the context of the proposed healthcare system.  Risk management tools are customized to specific patient needs, various healthcare practices, and different geographical and cultural considerations. Various approaches to implementing additional risk minimization measures are available, each posing unique challenges and opportunities according to disparate regulatory requirements in multiple countries. Effective monitoring and tracking implementation of additional risk minimization measures is essential to ensure compliance with required post-marketing commitments and to ensure the safe use of medicines globally. Risk Management is a unique discipline within pharmacovigilance that impacts nearly every patient, caregiver, and healthcare professional.

Objectives

  • Discuss emerging trends in pharmacovigilance risk management and risk minimization.
  • Describe various regulatory requirements for risk management plans (RMPs) and risk evaluation and mitigation strategies (REMS) development.
  • Compare and contrast methods to implement additional risk minimization measures globally.
